When you control your own retirement destiny, something happens to you—you grow in confidence and get a sense of financial peace like you haven’t felt before.

With 17 tips published in an article online, American IRA is showing its readers exactly what kinds of advantages they can use when using a Self-Directed IRA for their own retirement plan.

The article, published Oct. 14th on, was written by American IRA CEO Jim Hitt. As a Self-Directed IRA administration firm, American IRA doesn’t offer specifically-tailored advice as to which assets to invest in, but does offer a wealth of educational content on its website, especially related to retirement and self-direction.

Tips in the article are varied, and include pragmatic tips such as knowing that your Self-Directed IRA cannot do business with relatives. These are known as the “Disqualified person rules” and are vital to making sure investors don’t violate any regulations with a conflict of interest. The article also noted that it’s important to avoid mixing funds, such as using personal money to handle maintenance on a piece of real estate owned within a Self-Directed IRA.

“There are a lot of advantages associated with directing your own IRA,” notes Jim Hitt. “But what we want people to know is that these aren’t very difficult to figure out. And when you control your own retirement destiny, something happens to you—you grow in confidence and get a sense of financial peace like you haven’t felt before.”

Jim Hitt noted it’s better for investors to acquaint themselves with the rules so they can feel free to use their IRA in the safe—and legal—way that gives them all of the protections they’re looking for.
